Where to begin... First we took a train from London to Stamford. However, our switch over train at Peterborough was cancelled. We called Michael and Jilly to let them know we would be coming late. Michael said that it was silly to make us wait for the train, and offered that he would come pick us up at the train... More

One of the highlights of our summer tour since our stay coincided with my birthday as well as Michael's the following day and Jilly's just recently. Within an hour or so of arriving , we were celebrating with choice whiskies - including Penderyn ( welsh gold ), and bottles of wine on a fine ,warm evening as if we'd known... More

In terms of overall value this is as good as it gets. Comfortable accommodation, good food and very friendly hosts. Jilly and Michael go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a happy stay at Rowan House. Derek and June

We spent four nights enjoying Jilly and Michael's hospitality and would liked for it to have been longer. The weather wasn't brilliant but the warmth of their welcome didn't diminish. Our only hesitation in recommending Rowan House so strongly is that it might make having a re-visit more difficult!

Thank you to Jilly and Michael for making our stay so pleasurable. They altered their plans to suit our arrival time which was much appreciated. From the moment we arrived through to our departure time the following day we were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. It was the little extra things that... More

This is a long overdue review, not for lack of thinking about it, but more because I haven't had a moment to properly craft a deserving review for Jilly and Michael. I was traveling by myself and booked Rowan House last minute. Jilly and Michael were SO accommodating to have me for a night, even though they themselves were leaving... More

I came up to stay for a night with friends for a relaxing escape to the country and everything about our stay was wonderful. Gilly and Michael made us feel so welcome and looked after everything we could possibly need, our room was lovely and we also had access to a great lounge and kitchenette so it really was a... More

Booked Rowan House for the Rat Race at Burleigh House, in Stamford, and would definitely recommend it. Only stayed one night but would liked to have stayed for more. Jilly and Michael could not have been more hospitable. They even arranged for us to eat in the village pub, which was great and we could take our dog in too.... More

We recently spent 2 nights with Jilly and Michael when we came up from Kent to share my wife's brother's 60th birthday with him. We were lucky enough to find room at Rowan House. Michael's breakfasts loaded us up for the day, and Jilly's conversation made us feel like old friends. Barnack is a lovely village and RH is absolutely... More

My wife and I booked into this lovely Bed and Breakfast after having checked reviews through Trip Advisor and we feel so glad we did. The couple who run the house, Jilly and Michael, are an absolute delight. We truly wanted for nothing, with wonderfully cooked food and our hosts were incredibly helpful in every respect.
